Beware of Internet scammers

Special agents from the Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID) are once again warning Internet users worldwide to be extra vigilant and not to fall prey to Internet scams or impersonation fraud — especially scams promising true love. The victims are most often unsuspecting women, 30 to 55 years old, who think they are romantically involved on the Internet with American Soldiers. People should never send money to persons they meet on the Internet that claim to be in the U.S. Military. To report a scam to the Internet Crime Complaint unit, visit the IC3 website at http://www.ic3.gov. Also, report identity theft to the Federal Trade Commission at http://www.ftc.gov/idtheft , or call 1-877-ID-THEFT (438-4338).
